Workshop worth the wait

Hi all. Long time no post. Hope everyone has been enjoying a very nice summer, or winter, as the shoe fits.

We’ve been busy bees in the Trixie household, namely clearing out a scrubby portion of the property to put in a butterfly garden and redoing a workshop for yours truly – this was a long time coming and I am thankful thankful thankful for the Husband Who Can!

If you are interested in seeing some photos, here are the Before and Afters:

The clouds on the ceiling had been done in oil paint and were very texture-y, hard to remove!

We ended up ripping out the old yucky carpet and painting the subfloor with porch paint (Benjamin Moore Desert Twilight – lovely color!). It turned out perfectly. After, of course, hubby’s blood sweat and tears puttying, sanding, puttying, sanding…..(did I say that I am thankful?!?)

In progress, Trixie surveying the progress:

I am a sewing fool once again!!

Pictures of the butterfly garden coming later (still in progress).

And, as for comic strips, here is a preview of the next installment, featuring the invisible Trixie.
